New Plugin – Paste text in Moodle easily using Atto Paste Special plugin

Often I found a lot of new Moodlers struggle while pasting some text from different text editors like MS Word, Google Document, Richpad or others. Often they have to follow certain steps in pasting the text as shown in the video in this post.
